Trade Secrets

Our attorneys whose practices include trade secrets matters provide not only counsel regarding the identification, preservation, and protection of trade secrets, but also representation under circumstances involving alleged or actual misappropriation of trade secrets.

• Trade Secret audits
• Creation and implementation of trade secret protection programs and training
• Preparation of intellectual property and trade secret corporate policies
• Drafting and negotiating non-disclosure agreements for use with employees, independent contractors, vendors and other third parties
